And 2 stars because Phil can't sing? Only 4 because *you* couldn't make the show? Some of you guys' grading criteria cracks me up.
This thing is a big, chest-pounding 5 all the way as far as I'm concerned - that Cumberland is indeed totally out of control. Sometimes on a Phil show if the total track time is 21:00 it's more like 6 minutes of Cumberland and then 15 minutes of Jam > Jam >> Space Jam > Jam > Groovy Jam. Or whatever. But make no mistake here: this is 20 SOLID MINUTES OF CUMBERLAND INSANITY, FRONT TO BACK. Maybe the best I've ever heard this old tune rendered post-Jerry. That Cold Rain ain't no slouch, either - and while I must disagree with anything negative re: Phil's singing, you gotta love how he delivers that first line. :)
All that Elevator > Eleven stuff makes the 2nd set, which really stretches and flexes. Scarlet, bookended by jams, really does go to some cool places.
Subject: Nice capture
Sheesh. Oh, and it's really bad form to tell the nice man to shut the f**k up. Perhaps it's advice that you should heed yourself. Automatic 5 to compensate for the jerk with the big mouth.

Subject: Best Show of the Summer!!
Subject: Dave and dope?
In case I am, after all, in the right place for the review, this gets a solid four. Starts out a little jerky but then hits cruise control. Nice job, taper.
Subject: OUT OF CONTROL

I never thought anyone could play a 20 minute Cumberland, but once again Lesh Proved that with a little help from his friends (Jackie Green, you are the shit!!) anything is possible.
Furthermore, The Elevator and Eleven jams were very well crafted. I think anyone who appreciates music would agree. This includes all those tripping face, rolling, and or stoned out of their mind.
Lesh, thanks once again for this great show, your turning me in to a Lesh Head and I love it. PS- the lights and backgrounds for the show kicked ass as well.
Definetely Recommend Downloading this show! Best show at Vibes!
Subject: molo is an animal
Subject: Great recording - thanks
Cold Rain was a superb ending to the 1st set. Begonias was a great start to the second, maybe a weak ending but the rest was sweet. Watchtower, He's Gone, GDTRFB, great sequence.
They could have ended the show with Rider, I was totally happy at that point but got some icing on the cake with Fade Away.
Subject: Who knew?
Anyway, great show! This Cumberland is a totally different animal than what most of us think about when you think of that song. Epic!
Subject: thanks to Iclips and whoever uploaded this
Jackie Greene is great. Phil finds the best friends.
Subject: Phil Worked Out
They also have an infectious rhythm for Goin Down the Road/I Know You Rider. Both versions on Saturday were great.
I most fondly recall the jam in Here Comes Sunshine where they started to fractalize in ways that I like. Wish they did that more.
Strong Loser, Wharf Rat, Not Fade, and a surprisingly energetic All Along the Watchtower. They played up a storm.
In comparison to the power put into the rest of the songs, the Dire Wolf seemed a bit thin, as did Wandering. Scarlet sort of died at the end just when it was getting interesting.
All in all, this was a blow out, and much fun to attend. Many thanks for the upload. You guys are great.
